From Maria Aubel - May 2012:

Hello, just want to tell you I enjoyed all the stories on your website. Getting pregnant at 47 years old felt pretty lonely since all my friends kids are teenagers or having their own kids.

I got pregnant naturally, initially was told that I was in menopause, 3 months later by accident I found out it was my little one instead. I gave birth 2 months prior to my 48th birthday to a healthy, beautiful boy!

I'm trying to find a meetup group with "older" mom's but not having much luck yet. Anyway, it's great to read all these wonderful stories. Thank you for your website.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
